A Gem of A Challenge

When I was asked to be Special Guest Designer for Gem of a Challenge I jumped at the chance.  I love Janet's images & I chose Mrs Hoot digi download to work with (isn't she cute). The challenge this week is a Sketch with the optional extra of using material on your card ie tulle, lace, net, suede, ribbon etc.  The papers I used are by MME & were free with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine & I paper pieced Mrs Hoot's body, ribbon & the flowers.  The rest of the image was coloured with ProMarkers & chalks.  I finished the card off with gems, pearls, lace & a greeting.

I'm entering this card for these challenges:
By The Cute & Girly - Animal Antics
Frosted Designs - Celebrate Life
Fab 'n' Funky - Let's Get Spotty, Dotty & Stretchy Stripes
Creative Card Crew - Let's Get Cute & Girly 
Alphabet - O for Ovals (the greeting)
Raise the Bar - Pearly Whites
